Hellraiser: Revelations

Trivia: The film was made only to fulfill a legal requirement by Dimension films that stipulated the company would lose the rights to the franchise should too long go by without them making another installment. The film was hastily assembled (with only one rough draft of the script written, and only three weeks for the entire production including 11 days of filming) and released, which explains why it is comparatively and considerably cheaper and less polished (both in script and production) than previous installments.

Trivia: Promotional material often included allusions to series creator Clive Barker, despite Barker having nothing to due with the film. Barker was insulted by this, as the film was cheap and rushed production made only so the studio could retain the rights to the film franchise, and he very publicly (and very angrily) distanced himself from the film online, referring to it as "no child of mine."

Trivia: Doug Bradley, who had portrayed the character "Pinhead" in all previous films, refused to participate in this chapter. Bradley thought the concept had some promise, but felt like the script was "incomplete" and needed a lot more work. (As the script was indeed only a very rough first draft without any re-writes or editing due to a very rushed schedule.) He also was disheartened by the extremely drastic pay-cut the studio offered him compared to his pay for prior films, which he found insulting. Thus, he refused to participate. When he did finally see the finished film, he hated it for blatantly being nothing more than a cheap "ashcan copy" made so the studio could keep the rights to the franchise.
